Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will go on sale by the end of 2008 only in the following markets :
- India
- Taiwan
- Hong Kong
- Indonesia
- The UAE
- Spain
- Russia

Other markets (UK, North America, China, etc) that aren't included in the above list only be getting the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic in 2009 at the same time.

According to industry analysts, Nokia plans to sell about 10 million touchscreen handsets in 2009. But, I think is that this number won't be reached with the 5800 XpressMusic only.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2008-10-03 23:21 from M@T2 - click to readI'm a fan of any cool gadget. Not just the iphone =)

People use more BT and MMS than email? Where's your proof? For BT, it's used more for making calls, and the iphone does have that BT feature. Why would I pay extra fees to send MMS when I can email it with no extra fees? See, you are not making sense. Email is still more popular and actually more dependable than MMS. It's the award that counts, and the iphone got it. That would only mean that the other phones are even more disappointing, lol. Yes, the iphone has the best UI, and that is a big thing. Bigger than MMS and BT. You need to straighten up your perspective and priorities my friend. Of course you have to pay premium with the iphone because you get premium services like 3G, firmware upgrades, apps support and maintenance, etc. You do not get those extras from Nokia. Iphone is one of the best multi-media devices, if not the best. Where have you been in the past two years? LOL. What's wrong with you is, you give so much value to little features and you miss the bigger picture.

Of course there's nothing wrong with plastic displays. It just scratches easily =) You don't believe me when I say that all camera phone's photo quality are crap compared to digital cameras? I guess you never used a digital camera.

I'm not here to discourage anyone to buy this phone. It's a good buy. I just don't like it when Nokia fans diss a better device like the iphone =)

I wanted to get another iPhone 3G but I am going to get this one instead. It seems to meet all the criteria that I have for a mobile device, plus it has touchscreen. What more could you want? I have now been using my E65 for 6 months now and I like it very much. When it comes out I will order one for me and maybe also one for my lovely wife ;) But don't tell her.....I want it to be a surprise =>

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2008-10-03 21:54 from jJee - click to readSee, thats your problem right there. Youre already an iphone die-hard fan. You refuse to accept the plain facts even when they are there right in front of you. People use bluetooth and mms more than they use e-mail (which 5800 also handles). Its a fact. And the magazines that praised it were not as many as the websites that posted disappointing reviews. Even mobile-review.com got DNS attacks because of the not-so-friendly review. The iphone had the best UI, but that was it. Under the hood, it wasnt all fun and games. And the worst part is that you have to pay a premium for it. Iphone had the potential to become one of the best multimedia handsets around, but the fact that it was stripped of some of the most basic and important features left much to be desired. And there is nothing wrong with using plastic instead of glass. It still gets the job done nicely. This is a midrange handset.
Iphone vs iphone 3g? The only major differences were 3g and gps being added. They still didnt take care of the iphones original problems.
All phone camera's are crap? Youre being silly. Have you seen how good pictures come out in some phones like n82, 6210, innov8? Just accept the facts. At the end of the day, the 5800 phone rocks more. Besides, people will buy this one because its much more affordable.
